vlvnls of bygone ways. In Loudon tins ox
qulslto Is trying its fast an ho dnro to put
on again the graceful shoe buckle. I In
wears on his feet n pair of brilliant "patent
pumps" which nro tied with 11 black rlblMin
In a broad bow, and he arranges his trail
Hers with n view to display this introduc
tion of tho silver buckle. In sport and
outdoor exorcise tho muho spirit of revival
provalls In England mid along the eastern
coast of these United States.
One form of this, and iwrhups -tho most
romantic form, is tlio incipient craze lor
"pillion riding." Already In Hyde park
mounted couples nra to lio seen going up
and down Ilottcu row nt a gentle canter,
tho gentleman trying to do two different
things at once manage his cob In the
crowded carrlcole nud fascinate tho gentle
creature behind him. She, seated as easily
and gracefully as If she were In 11 rocking
chair or 11 plush lined victoria, displays tu
tho full the elegance f iiur costume, and
both seem to enjoy .tiio attention they
naturally attract. In fact the pillion has
put thu tricyclo out -of joint, so to speak,
nud the ladles who onco awoke envy by
their graceful management of tho wheels
arc forced to frequent bypaths.
"Pillion riding" cannot bo said to bo do
mesticated yet in New York's Central
park, but wait and you will not have to
wait long. Already In thu country clubs
the guests ride "double," and what meets
with favor out of town is uro to be taken
up en ville.
Hut what is n plllionf somebody asks, It
is a thick, linn, well stuffed, wide and level
cushion, extending quite across the broad

one on either side. It Is covered -on tho
outside with line drab kerseymere to save
the lady's drehs, and this coior Is generally
quilted or embroidered, and bound with
ornamental braid. At the back-of tho pill
ion is n strong leather handle, which can
lo put up or down, working with a hinge.
There is, beside, a comfortable footstool
or long, narrow stirrup suspended by
leather straps in such a fashion list alToid
support even should the lady wlshito rise
to adjust her dress or the seat.
It will lm seen that tho lady has u firm
support for her feet and a rest like tho arm
of a chair, but in addition to these safe
guards thorn Is another on which she may
or may not iusist a leather girdle worn
around tho waist of her companion in
front, which she may clutch at times of
danger or whou tlio horse Is changing bis
gait. Particularly at tho latter moment
the pillion loses 11 portion of its vaunted
comfort, and if there bo no leather girdle
to cling to, what is left but the waist of her
escort? It is as well before adopting the
pillion definitely to cousider all its points
those unfavorably as well as those which
It sounds heretical, but the real defect of
the pillion is the iudispensabllltyof a man.
In this joint partnership a 11:1111 must ride
(lrst, unless a woman friend will consent
to ride astiide; and what horse would
stand two sets of limpings? And In tho
present ago woman has gone pretty far to
ward declaring that man Is absolutely
necessary on but few occasions. Graceful
and comfortable as tho pillion is it talongs
to an ago when women were demure, slope
shoiiiileied and clinging. It is a question
then at thu very start If the new fad can
lie of long duration, for our girls are ath
letic, broad shouldered and independent.

for miles in tho parks and country under
tlio safe and close protection of tlio man
she likes best In the world, and with eery
oppoitunltv to "breathe her aireet ion down
his back," but thu greatest aid to the pill
ion will not bo the style of the girl, but thu
style of tho horse.
Kcrybody knows that "colia' are now in
fashion strong, square backed animals,
capable of carrying two or even more for
lougdlhtnuics without much fatigue. Olio
girl, or even one man, on these large wide
backed creatures loul.s rather Isolated and

own way In Contra! park.
And now as to tho puce required to In
mire comfort and safety. It has already
lioen Muted that tlio pleasure of the pillion
Is dependent on circumstances the llrst of
which Is the pace of tho animal the pair
ride upon. He must not go with a long,
launching gult, or tho poor womixn would
rail like n boat In 11 rough sea, A quiet,
regular Jog trot, never lifting the feet high
ntaive the ground, Is tho gait the horso
must travel. This trot Is Just the next de
gree In swiftness to 11 walk, n pace Into
which hofeoi naturally fall, and which,
when their spirits are not loo high, they
twin to prefer to nny other
Provided these conditions art) preserved,
nlo that the horse Is strong enough for
the weight of two persons, both animal
anil rider can travel In this Jog trot way
for an Immense distance without actually
suffering from fatigue. Pushed tayontl
this pace, spurred Into a brisk trot, or,
worse, Into 11 gallop, Isith horse and riders
present 11 nM-ctiiGlo as grotesque as Tnni
and his gray tuitra Meg, with the witches
behind them. The woman on the pillion
has no power whatever to nreommodato
herself to such extraordinary clrciim
Maiicos. (JIT falls lier hat. Down st ramus
her hair. She wcremus mid clasps her es

tique trappings of the last century.
How to mount the pillion? There must
tann "lipping stone." You will see these
still standing nt tho gates of some of the
churches and ill front -of some doors In
the old towns of Now York mid Massachu
setts. Hut if you Lave no "lipping stono"
n chair or stcpladder will serve the pur
pose, although it Is hardly orthodox.
A sight that may be termed picturesque,
and which turned the imaginations of the
park policemen If iiioy have any back to
1800, might have been witnessed as early as

to hold tight to the handles. She obeyed,
